expert, michael nutter of philadelphia and eugene robinson. mayor nutter, thank you so much for joining me. you're on the front line every time there's a homicide in philadelphia, you know all of the facts and figures. and you certainly know about the school district. let's just look at this as if it came from pluto, this idea. didn't come from the nra. what value does it have to have an armed police officer, a 50-year-old guy, maybe an ex-police officer, retired police officer, standing somewhere near the lobby of the main door of a high school in philly. would it have any value? >> well, here's the deal, chris. in many instances, as we saw in newtown, certainly, the person doesn't always come in the front door. and while in very specific situations, in certain schools, whether it's officers patrolling nearby or as a part of their regular duties coming into schools, this is not really a serious idea. the issue is less guns. and certainly, less semi-automatic weapons, rifles of this type. the issue is about the type of weapons that should be accessible and available to civilians. and th

, 43-year-old michael ciporrani and 25-year-old, tomascz chip chip. the shooter, william spengler set the home ablaze and took his own life shooting himself in the head. spengler was no stranger to law enforcement. he served 16 years for a conviction of manslaughter beating his grandmother to death. as a ex-con, spengler was not permitted to have weapons. >> spengler was a convicted felon. he is not allowed to poe -- possess weapons. so did he legally possess the weapons? no. we've had all kinds of weapons larcenies in town and around the county and wayne county as of late so i don't know where those weapons came from but we'll certainly find out. >> reporter: why spengler went on the rampage there is still known motive. when the mother died two months ago, obit irwary asked for donations to the west webster fire department and that is who responded to the fire. he had a strained relationship with his sister. the massive fire that left seven homes destroyed made it difficult to search for what might be additional victims. jamie, it is possible we might learn more defails in the next f

. it was started by new york city mayor michael bloomberg and thomas nunino in 2006 but gaining momentum. susan candiotti joins me from new york. as i read about these funerals and the children, the details, it's just still overwhelming. that press conference yesterday, it was the most ridiculous thing i've ever seen from anyone, including especially the nra. is your plan to focus on gun control -- is it a move to help safety in school? what's going on here? >> well, we'll have to find out, i guess. in the wake of the tragedy of sandy hook elementary in connecticut, the nra, a lot of people thought, would offer some concessions and maybe depart from its hard line stance against gun control. but that didn't happen. nra leadership made no mention of a proposed assault weapon ban or tougher background checks or restricting the size of high-capacity magazines. instead saying the best way to protect children is to put armed police officers at every school. >> the only way to stop a monster from killing our kids is to be personally involved and invested in a plan of absolute protection. the only thin
michael bloomberg who said they, meaning the nra, offered a paranoid vision of a more dangerous and violent america where everyone is armed and no place is same. the nra as's lobbyists blamed everyone but nems for the crisis of gun violence. this is the new senator and he tweeted out walking out of another funeral and handed the nra transcript, the most revolting, tone-deaf statement i've seen. can i get your reaction to that reaction? >> well, live by my own statements, and i hope they look at those as well. they want to focus the debate on new laws and new prohibitions, and i'm saying that's the wrong debate. that's their solution. i believe a better solution is school safety initiatives, one of those options being an armed presence we have in one-third of the schools. p if you have an option of sending a child to a school with an armed presence who are trained that can protect the children or a school that doesn't have that option, right now the polls show in america most people would select the more secure school, the one that invests in security. so let's help these schools
in that community and elsewhere outraged. attorney and policy advisor michael barns joins me from washington to explain. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> gretchen: first of all, is this even legal for a newspaper to -- i know it's legal for them to get the public record information of who is license to do own a gun, but is it legal for them to post it for everybody else to see? >> the newspaper has the legal right to do so, but that doesn't mean that it is right to do so. in fact, i think that the newspaper's actions were very divisive as part of this community and also dangerous. publication of these names and addresses of individuals who possess guns gives them a list to any criminal of the houses who have guns in case they want to find a low security environment in which to go and steal weapons. new york has a problem with terrorist cells. so we also know which houses don't have guns. this is a severe danger to the community that this newspaper has brought about. >> gretchen: like i'm thinking, let's say now that somebody goes to rob one of these homes that they know they don't ha
a march of one million moms in washington, d.c., we spoke with kaseen reid in atlanta, and michael bloomberg coming out and condemning the nra statement that came out on friday. what is the baby step towards a solution here? really, is there the political will to get things done? >> i used to work for chuck schumer and he will be active on this issue. the baby step is to start treating them like automobiles. let's require insurance before you can register and own them. then the market will determine risk. people with higher risk will not be able to get guns and they will not be able to afford guns. if we stop with that. we can move away from big be round ammunitions. you will get a hard time getting insurance for a weapon that can cause more damage. we could keep it away from the government. let the private sector regulate it on its own. >>. >> the nra proposal that was put out is not far-fetched. a lot of schools have resource officers that provide an extra level of security. but you have to understand that there's 100,000 public schools in the country. do the math. >> 5 billion.
were injured, in webs sister, new york, but i want to play what one of your own colleagues, michael nutter had to say about a plan like yours taking place in their area. take a listen. >> i guess, you know, out of last week's bizarre press statement, it wasn't a press conference, i guess mr. lapierre would then say that firefighters need to have armed guards go with them. i think it just shows that that was a completely dumb-[ bleep ] idea from the start. >> so he's talking there about the nra's reaction coming out saying the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with the gun. you're not a supporter of nra? >> not at all. >> but you're saying -- >> my job is to make it safe for the marlboro students in my jurisdiction. i don't make state law, i don't make federal law. i don't support the nra, i want to get rid of assault rifles. i think we have to close the loopholes on gun control. that being said, our students need to be safe where they learn. what newtown showed us was existing security is not safe the people that rely on safety in our commune and they do an excelle
